Address homebuyers’ grievances against builders: Khattar

Statesman News Service |

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has given a slew of orders to address the grievances of residents and people who have bought flats from builders here.

He ordered an inquiry into maintenance-related issues at Ambience Lagoon apartments here.

There was a demand from residents to hand over the maintenance of the Ambience Lagoon apartments near Ambience Mall to the residents’ welfare association (RWA) but two parallel associations presented their claims.

After listening to CM orders to both the parties yesterday, Khattar ordered the setting of a committee headed by divisional commissioner D Suresh, with two other members as chief administrative coordinator S N Vashisth, and commissioner of police Sandeep Khirwar.

The committee has to submit its report in the next meeting, an official spokesperson said.

The CM was presiding over the monthly meeting of District Grievances Committee during his two-day visit to Gurgaon. A total of 23 complaints were taken up at the meeting held at mini-secretariat, the spokesperson said.

In a number of complaints the allottees had alleged that they have deposited about 95 per cent of the cost, yet the builders have not handed over the possession of the flats. In some cases, six to nine years have elapsed, he said.

Listening to complaints against Vistas project of Unitech Ltd in Sector 70, Khattar said the matter was being resolved through meeting among allottees and builder.

The officials of Town and Country planning informed that they were taking stock of assets and liabilities of Unitech which has 244 subsidiary companies and in Gurgaon alone, the developer has licences for construction of residential projects in 1,100 acres.

The company has submitted revival plan of four projects and the department is studying the plan, the officials said.

Listening to complaints against EMAAR-MGF business park in Sector 28 and Emerald Hills Township projects in Sector 65, Khattar was informed that Dubai-based Emaar had taken over all shares of MGF and work on all projects has started.

In a complaint against the builder of Orchid Island at Mayfield Garden in Sector 51, the CM asked the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) administrator Yashpal Yadav to probe the matter.

About the two complaints sent by a local MLA, the CM said this forum was not for MLAs and they can directly approach him.
